Grown from a carob pod in a sunny, Central Coast national park, Felicity Ward is a multi-award winning comedian, actor and writer who has toured her award-winning, sell-out shows across the world, winning hearts of audiences and critics everywhere she goes.

Felicity regularly appears on screens across Australia and the UK, including Thank God You're Here, Have You Been Paying Attention, Spicks and Specks, Russell Howard's Good News and Mock the Week. Felicity has also appeared in two feature films, Any Questions for Ben? and The Inbetweeners 2. In 2021, she starred in the ABC Dramedy Wakefield.

Following the success of her ABC documentary, Felicity's Mental Mission, Felicity was handpicked by the BBC in 2015 as one of the new faces of UK comedy starring in her own Live From The BBC special - the only Australian selected.

Felicity is a Chortle UK Club Comic of the Year nominee and has been nominated for the biggest awards in live comedy, including Best Comedy at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Adelaide Fringe, and has won Best Australian Act at the Perth Comedy Festival and Best Local Act at the Sydney Comedy Festival, twice.

In 2018, Felicity recorded her first BBC Radio 4 seres, Appisodes and is a regular co-host of The Guilty Feminist podcast. Felicity was announced as the lead in the upcoming Aussie remake of The Office, set to air on Amazon in 2024.

In short: she goes alright.
